Itinerary:

Are you interested in some good old Italian fun? Bocce is IT!

Roswell's Adult Recreation Center grounds play host to 3 official sized Bocce Ball courts that are lit up enough for evening play! I've been missing my routine matches we had before COVID hit and now I need more! I have one full set of bocce balls + a pallino...so, if anyone else wants to join....more the merrier.
If you're not familiar with BOCCE it's kind of like a combination of shuffleboard & horseshoes with balls - if you want to become more familar with the sport; head over to https://usbf.us for more info. There, they have the history of "Italian Lawn Bowling," a rules page and much more.

It's pretty dern easy and it's just an effort of mine to have ONE of every type of AOC event they offer (this one being "Sport"). So, c'mon out and take part of a new "sport," or refresh your game!

Also, if you sign up and have your own set of Bocce Balls please note that in the sign up description/note area. We could potentially have 3 games going on at once.


Required Items to Bring:

Great outgoing & kind attitude
Sense of humor
Maybe a beverage or two - it's a city park....so, you know the drill
Maybe a warm jacket

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

9-Pc Bocce ball set

10 gallon cowboy hat (seeing if you're reading this)

Bluetooth speaker(s)

The ability to count to 21 in Italian  :P
